Laser cutting is better than other methods because it works well for a wide variety of thicknesses and materials. Other methods tend to be less accurate, slower, specific to certain materials only or all of the above. The accuracy and finish of the edge is perfect, potentially saving hundreds of pounds in tooling costs.
How does fibre-optic laser cutting differ from CO2 laser cutting?Emma Onions2019-04-29T10:50:26+00:00
They cut a broader variety of materials and cut thinner materials more accurately and quicker. Fibre-optic lasers are also more energy efficient than CO2 lasers and therefore better for the environment.
How do different cutting methods apply to different types of metal?Emma Onions2019-04-29T10:51:09+00:00
Traditionally plasma and oxyacetylene were used to cut plate and sheet metal. The introduction of lasers revolutionised the industry with clean, accurate cutting. The ability to cut metal using optic-fibre laser-cutting machines has widened the field drastically with high quality, flexibility and speed.
What is the most complex or intricate item that you have laser cut? What challenges were involved?Emma Onions2019-04-29T10:51:29+00:00
We recently cut an artist’s fluidity panel. This was a challenging job as it consisted of thousands f arcs and lines which intersected each other. The processing power of our software and the quality of the laser made it possible to process this image into a finished product.
How many items can you laser-cut in a day / week / month?Emma Onions2019-04-29T10:51:50+00:00
The number of items can be in their thousands per day. The Bysoft 7 software can take hundreds of parts and nests them all together in seconds, which saves hours of man-power. A single sheet of material could have a thousand specific parts in it and they can be processed in minutes. It is a truly intellient fabrication process.
